The segment kicks off with host David Gregory asking Hickenlooper (joined by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker) what will tip the scales toward Obama in Colorado.
"Well," Hickenlooper replied, "I think if you look at the mess that President Obama inherited, and I mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his pregnancy...."
Whoever transcribed this comment apparently took mercy on Hickenlooper, because the word "presidency" appears in the read-along text that accompanies the video on the Meet the Press website. But to these ears, there's zero doubt Hickenlooper said "pregnancy."
Judge for yourself: The Hickenlooper response comes just after the forty second point.
